Abstract The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and direct antigen coating enzyme linked immunosorbant assay (DAC-ELISA) were compared for the diagnosis of sugarcane bacilliform virus (SCBV) in sugarcane clones. The SCBV specific primers were used for PCR and polyclonal antiserum for SCBV was used in DAC-ELISA. Eleven clones suspected for SCBV foliar symptoms comprising of different species of Saccharum, interspecific hybrids and allied genera were taken and an apparently healthy clone was also taken for the comparison. In PCR a 221bp DNA fragment was amplified in all the eleven clones with suspected foliar symptoms and there was no amplification in the apparently healthy clone. In DAC-ELISA a positive reaction was obtained only in eight SCBV suspected clones indicating higher sensitivity of PCR for the diagnosis of SCBV and it could be effectively used during quarantine operations for the sugarcane germplasm exchange.
